While I’m directing your attention to my friends at Sandwich, do not miss their shot-in-quarantine spot for Slack and the fascinating behind-the-scenes video documenting how they did it and created a system around the process:
It’s not easy to produce new live-action work these days that’s
full of authentic character, on-message and on-brand, without
sacrificing quality or relying on stock clips. But we’ve built new
methods for doing just that, tastefully, repeatably and safely.
With real lights, sound and cameras (not just iPhones).
(I will also add that all of our collaboration for the production and editing of The Talk Show Remote was done over Slack, and it was frictionless. I give Slack grief over the interface details of their client apps (especially Mac), but I complain because I care. You know the oft-cited adage that “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others”? That’s what Slack is for remote collaboration.)
